  • Statutory minimum again I presume. How can a firm so tight with its staff have such a poor profit margin? Maybe the Exec should take a look at themselves?

  • Surely it was double that figure, with 90 support staff and more compromised out???

    Next the rest will be down to 4 days week (still 1800 chargeable hours a year) and then shut Cambridge Newcastle and Nottingham.

  • According to the Job Watch figures Eversheds has (officially) made or will be making 735 redundant thats is an astounding figure even in this economic climate. Are there any associates actually left or is it just the partners.

  • Any associate would need to think very carefully before joining this ship. It seems to be treating its staff with utter contempt. Whatever its partnership might think, Eversheds is a decidedly average brand and its value as a destination for any decent lawyer is dropping fast.

  • I think that the firm has lost it's way in its handling of its staff and its position in the legal market place. As for considering flexible working - well I doubt it will offer flexibility for the employees selected.

  • How many jobless lawyers now?
    Pro-bono (unpaid experience in a Depression....whoops Recession.....sorry!! "Credit Crunch") existence on benefits with a portion of chips please.
    Or one could flip burgers. Protein and dexterity. Global Company. CV's looking better by the second!
